Anil kumble steps down as Team India coach

Anil Kumble has reportedly stepped down as India’s chief cricket coach.Although, none of the BCCI top officials, who are in London for the ICC Annual Conference, were available for confirmation but it is being widely reported that Kumble has submitted his resignation.
He was having some kind to rift with the captain of Indian Cricket Team, Virat Kohli.
It has been just two days when India lost to Pakistan badly and he stepped down as India’s chief cricket coach.
His one year contract expired at the end of the Champions Trophy but he was given the option to travel with the team to the West Indies for the limited-overs series beginning on Friday.
Mr. Amitabh Choudhary, Acting Secretary of the BCCI, said “We wish to place on record our sincere appreciation for the immense contribution by Anil Kumble to the team which enabled India to attain the No.1 Test position. Indian cricket needs his continued contribution in various capacities and wishes him all the best in his future endeavour.”
On the sidelines of the Champions Trophy in the UK, the Cricket Advisory Committee Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly held meetings with Kumble as well as Kohli to sort out the differences between the duo.
The team did well under Kumble in the past 12 months, winning Test series in the West Indies before winning at home against New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia.
